Our Participatory Budgeting Project Won!

The Diversity Committee is ​pleased​ to announce that our proposed project​, which was included on Council Member Landers Participatory Budgeting ballot​, has received enough votes to get funded!! ​

The project will hire a temporary part-time outreach coordinator who will start in July 2018 and work with​ the three district wide schools in Council District 39​ ​(​PS 372, PS 133 and the Brooklyn New School​)​.

The coordinator will assist the schools ​t​o share best practices and work together to create a coordinated outreach plan​ that will increase economic and linguistic diversity at all three schools​.

The larger goal of this project ​is that it will serve as​ a citywide model ​to demonstrate that providing assistance to schools​ who are participating​ in ​the ​​New York City​ ​DOE’s D​iversity in ​Admissions ​P​rogram​ helps those schools achieve the program’s goals​.

Congratulations to the hard-working Diversity Committee for making this happen!
